GAA: Kerry v Meath.

NFL SEMI-FINAL DIV.2: John O'Keeffe insists that it will take more than a league semi-final for Kerry to rid the ghosts of last year's All-Ireland semi-final anihilation by Meath.

But this Limerick clash offers a quick chance of revenge for Kerry against a side that has been experiencing problems.

Darren Fay is still serving a suspension while their midfield, without John McDermott, has not yet taken shape.

Trevor Giles remains at centre-back, arguably his most natural position.

Kerry have restored Seamus Moynihan to full-back while Liam Hassett starts at full-forward today.

Kerry have not beaten Meath in their last three meetings, the All-Ireland semi-final, the 2000 league semi-final and the 1999 league quarter-final.

Losses to Limerick and Laois is not the sign of a team going well.

Meath are notoriously hard to beat at this stage of a competition even if they have been struggling against Wexford, Longford and Monaghan of late.

Kerry's attack looks lightweight but with Moynihan at full-back they will be hard to penetrate.

VERDICT:KERRY.
